GDN Profile: Winfall, NC Mayor Fred Yates Says Future Looks Bright
 
Mayor Yates, the first African-American to serve as Mayor of Winfall, is a retiree of the US Marine Corps. He hails from West Virginia, having attended West Virginia State College before coming to North Carolina.

During his long tenure as Mayor of a town listed as having a current population of just over 600 per the latest US Census figures, Winfall has seen the construction of a new Town Hall building in 2003, a new building for the town volunteer fire department (along with new fire trucks); Winfall Landing Park was established on the Perquimans River ; eighteen homes were renovated under a block grant from the Department of commerce; and a $6.4 million sewer system was installed throughout the entire town.

Sixty-one percent of Winfall’s population is white and 38 percent is African-American. The median age for the town is 42, and the median household income is $27,386.

The Living Word
Romans 12:1-2
The Living Bible

1:
And so, dear brothers, I plead with you to give your bodies to God. Let them be a living sacrifice, holy—the kind he can accept. When you think of what he has done for you, is this too much to ask?

2: Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how his ways will really satisfy you.
